Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 17, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta THE IFTHBRIDOE HERAID AM 17, 1973 South African defence centre real stronghold TOWN fAfi -South expanding defence ar- indi.KJrs a new million ioiis centre de- to a nuclear or attack. Sunk deep into Hie slopes of thp Constantia Mountains near Cape Town, the centre bristles uith electronic gear and bulges with emergency provisions. Two heavy steel doors pro- fee! ing the main entrance are designed to withstand a direct hit by a bomb. A series of secret doors can be used in an emergency. But J. F. Brink, commander of the centre, says the sur- rounding mountains virtually rule out an air or naval strike the installation, called Sil- vemiine. Inside, three computers plot the position of ships in an area stretching from the South Pole to North Africa and from South America to Bangladesh. Apart from their defence role, the computers help in international search and rescue operations. Permanent radio commu- nications are maintained with cities around the world as far apart at London. Dakar and Buenos Aires. Besides the main centre, there are subsidiary in- stallations on South Africa's east and west coasts. VORSTER CITES AIM "The Republic of South Africa is determined to defend itself and the free world to the ut- most of its capabilities Prime Minister John Vorster says. I A survey by the International Institute 'for Strategic Studies said the country has 17.301) regulars in the military service, and 92.000 reservists. This year's draft is expected to in- duct 33.000 recruits. The 10.000-man regular army has more than 1.100 vehicles, including tanks, armored cars and troop carriers. The navy cruises in an array of subma- rines, destroyers, mine sweep- ers and other ships. The air force flies 166 combat planes. j The defence budget has been growing steadily. It jumped to j million this year from S472 j million in 1972. Defence Minis- ter Pieter W. Botha, however. j said only about nine per cent of j the national budget goes for de- fence.

"Both the president and So- viets must understand that nor- mal relations between our coun- tries cannot proceed while Jews and others in the Soviet Union are harassed and prevented, by whatever means, from exercis- ing their right of emigration." It said that the scaling down of the original fees for exit visas appeared to have been the result of outside pressures, particularly from the U ni t e d States. "Our conclusion was that 1972 was a grim year for Soviet Jews despite the record high WINNIPEG (CP> The Manitoba and Saskatchewan governments announced today the formation of sn inter-pro- vincial hog marketing agency, the first of its kind in North America. Manitoba Agriculture Mini- ster Sam Uskiw said the chief functions of the new agency will be to promote sales of hogs to export markets and other re- gions of Canada, as well as to co-ordinate pricing strategy for the two provinces' existing hog marketing agencies. The new corporation will be directed by a six-roan boTd. with three representatives from each of the provinces. Its head office will, be in Saskatoon. Last year the two provinces produced abc't 2.5 hogs, valued at between million and million. About half of this number were mar- keted outside Manitoba and Saskatchewan. Mr. Uskiw said he hopes the new agency can be expanded to include the province of Al- berta some time in the future. At the present time, however, Alberta has neither the legisla- tion nor the hog marketing sys- tem to allow its narticipation in such a joint effort, he ex- plained. The minister said joint agency will derive all its authority from the existing hog marketing agencies in Sas- katchewan and Manitoba. The two provinces are to co-oper- ate on future export sales, but the agreement is not' retroac- tive to sales already commit- ted. Mr. Uskiw said the "com- plete co-ordination" between the two provinces is one" of keys in promoting hog sales. Prospects for further sales to Japan and the United States look promising, he said, but these sales could have been undermined by competi- tion between the two prairie provinces. The minister said the joint agency will determine produc- tion quotas in each of the prov- inces. The agreement also contains an addendum stating that if joint selling agency is estab- lished for another farm prod' net. the board responsible will h.'ve its headquarters in Man- itoba, preferably in Brandon.
